Our Parish Centre

Our Parish Centre

The parish centre for Our Lady Star of the Sea Roman Catholic Church is situated in St Albans Road, a short walk from the church. It is the social heart of our church. We have parties and social evenings organised not by one social committee but by different groups within the congregation, in fact we could almost say our social life is organised by everyone for everyone.

We can hire out our centre by the room, hall or in it's entirety. Our accommodation comprises of:

THE HALL, which seats 180 theatre style and 140 banqueting style.

There is also a well equipped stage. There is a hatch to the kitchen where food can be served.


THE LEARNING SUITE, which can also be used as a function room. This seats 60 theatre style and 50 banqueting style. There is an overhead projector and flip charts as well as a plentiful supply of electric sockets. There is also a small kitchen area for making hot drinks.

THE LOUNGE AND BAR has seating for 60, which can either be hired separately for a small party or in conjunction with the hall, to which it connects. There is a bar, which if required will be staffed by parish centre volunteers to serve wines, spirits, bottled beer lager and cider. Soft drinks and mixers are also stocked.

THE 2 MEETING ROOMS can accommodate 12 and 20 people respectively.

The Centre is on one floor, and there are no steps. There are toilets (including disabled)  easily accessible from all rooms. There is also a large car park.

The Centre will be available for hire at the following rate:

First hour £15.00 per hour
2+ hours £12.00 per hour

This charge includes use of kitchen, toilets and car park. We also offer Bar Facilities by arrangement and we can offer the use of one or both of our two small meeting rooms.
